Part of the Google DevFest 2017 Season
Little Dada is a Toronto based collective that explores the role of technology in culture through whimsical works that cast a critical lens on techno-utopian narratives. Through installations, wearable technology, radical pedagogy and event organization, we infuse the spirit of dadaism into everyday life. Straddling the line between art and design, product and critique, we aim to highlight the ways in which technology is never neutral. Our work aims to elevate those who have been marginalized in narratives around technology, and explore possible futures where these voices are celebrated. Our work has been shown in festivals, galleries and publications across North America, Asia and Europe.
